an exclusive interview that the shooter "shot [victims] in the head" as he walked by people "on the ground" and "praying in Spanish." Yes -- it's that disturbing.
As Grant, who was ultimately shot in the back but survived, tells CNN from a hospital bed in Del Sol Medical Center, shoppers begged the shooter not to kill them as he opened fire in the parking lot, then roamed the Walmart itself.
"He had no remorse for their lives at all," Grant, who says he threw bottles at the gunman in an attempt to deter him, stated. Make no mistake: This was an act of heroism. According to Grant, the shooter only noticed him because he was throwing the bottles Grant, conceivably, could have hidden and run without drawing attention to himself, but he wanted to do his best to stop the massacre.
"I was like, oh my God, this guy is shooting at me," Grant told Cuomo, describing the moment he realized he had the shooter's attention on him. It was when he ducked from a bullet -- only to be shot in the back anyway -- that he was trapped on the floor, watching others beg for their lives in Spanish. Somehow, Grant was able to get himself back up. He ran to the auto department while the gunman went to the bank, near the store's restrooms.
At the auto department, Grant found U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agent Donna Sifford, who had left her firearm at home that today. He told her about the shooter inside the store before Sifford and two Walmart employees got him into a truck and rushed him to the local hospital.
Here's the video of Grant's recount of this traumatic event:
